I have a server running IIS and Plesk. There is a problem every day now in which the memory usage of PleskControlPanel.exe and w3wp.exe slowly increases. And at some point all of the sites hosted on the server go down.

Restarting Plesk through its panel will reset its memory usage for a while, and restarting IIS will make it last even longer, but there is still the constant memory climbing problem. I cannot see anything by looking through the event viewer.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this with Plesk on Windows?

Sounds like a memory leak to me. Are you running the latest version of Plesk? Up to date on your windows updates?
